    Phoronix: 8-Way Linux Distribution Benchmarks On The Intel Core i9 9900K - One Distro Wins 67% Of The Time

    Following last week's release of the Intel Core i9 9900K, I spent several days testing various Linux distributions on this latest Core i9 CPU paired with the new ASUS Z390-A PRIME motherboard. I was testing not only to see that all of the Linux distributions were playing fine with this latest and greatest desktop hardware but also how the performance was looking. Benchmarked this round on the i9-9900K was Ubuntu 18.04.1 LTS, Ubuntu 18.10, Clear Linux 25720, Debian Buster Testing, Manjaro 18.0-RC3, Fedora Workstation 29, openSUSE Tumbleweed, and CentOS 7.

    it was obvious that clear linux would win most of the tests, in fact im surprised that the percentage wasnt higher due to the optimizations and previous results

        Is ClearLinux actually used for anything in production or just written to win benchmarks (the trick reminds me of MetaGolfScript)?
        From their site it looks like it's designed to be small (like Rancher OS or Alpine)?

          It is used by at least a number of some data centers / cloud, IoT, and other environments but exactly where it's used doesn't seem to be widely published.

            Clickbait would be something like "And you wont believe who wins"

            The heading is clear and accurate as one Distro did win 67% of the time.

              clickbait doesn't have to be false, just has to bait you into going to the article because the wording made it sound interesting. It's just as easy for the headline to say "Clear Linux wins 67%" of the time but that doesn't attract as many clicks because everyone expects Clear Linux to come ahead as it has in every other benchmark article.

                Interesting to see that Ubuntu 18.10 did very badly in this test, which is unusual. I wonder what caused it, maybe there are some specific compiler optimisations for the i9 that it doesn't use?

                  Well it lost to 18.04 a lot of the time, I doubt that 18.04 was compiled with more i9 optimisations

                    Where would a minimal Arch install Perform in a benchmark like this? I'd assume it would perform closer to Clear Linux as it doesn't have the degrees of bloat that the larget distributions have.
